. . . because I couldn't find a decent cilice in my size.
How we concluded our parish fiesta on Sunday night. Yes, we love our pastor, Fr. John Moneypenny.
And was that the DigiAssassin in the red apron behind and to the right of the dear Pastor?
LMBO - he looked like a walking/talking cotton candy.Digi - you are so evil (which is why I lourves you)
Is this the dress rehearsal for the Halloween?
I was a little bummed that Father wasn't in his clerics until I saw what y'all did to him. Who got to clean that up?
Kathy, of course we helped him clean up. Why bummed? This was a church fair, with rides, and dancing, and games - for an occasion like that, I think Father gets a pass on the collar. Plus, right after this the fiesta ended and we got a head start on clean-up, and Father pitches in. One thing I like about him is that he is a priest who is not afraid (or too proud) to get his hands dirty if there is work to do.
Glad he wasn't smoking,as he could have imitated Jeanne d'Arc (that stuff is flammable).
LOL! Father is a good sport. That "silly string" would make a good costume for Halloween.
Digi,I see your point about Father getting a "pass" on the collar. But on the other hand, as pastor, shouldn't he be distinguishable as the priest of the parish? Who am I? Nobody. I just like to see priests dressed like priests.ps I didn't think you made Father clean up that mess. I assumed the crew took care of it.
Kathy,I could joke and say in a parish of mainly dark-skinned, mestizo culture parishioners, a 6'4" white guy is pretty well distinguishable.However, the truth is, Fr. Moneypenny is unlike some priests I have encountered who are "too busy" to come out of their office except to say Mass and make a quick and obligatory "appearance" at church functions. He wears his clerics often, no worries, but I think it is a testament to his dedication that everyone knows who he is, because he gives his time to all. I think that says more than a collar worn at the end of a church fiesta.
HaHA!!!!![So, next year, the bucket of ice cold gatorade from behind? (Just a head's up to Fr. M. to shuck the clericals again next go around.)]
